Question about Hoover HDC7FM Dryer

Hoover HDC7FM condensor dryer starts then cuts out

This dryer operates for 3 seconds then cuts out. It also causes the houses socket fuse to trigger. Even just having it plugged in and not operating will cause the house fuse to trigger.

    the house now trips as soon as I plug in the machine. there are no smells at all and the machine worked perfectly in the old location. I will try the 30 amp fuse and see how it goes. The rest of the electrical items in the house do not trip the house... hmm

Open the dryer door (right after the breaker trips) and check for a burned smell. If it smells in the dryer, you probably have a direct short in the dryer wiring. Check for a burn smell at the wall socket. There may be a short in the socket itself, but not likely unless a mouse is lying across the contacts in the wall.
If everything checks ok replace the circuit breaker if this is an older home. Circuit breakers weaken after years of use. A 30 amp circuit breaker will trip at a much lower amperage after a period of years especially if it has tripped often.
